A message from Sue Nokleby, SNOM President:
In January, many of us experienced the first school closure in several years. The storm also postponed our SNOM board meeting until February. Now as I write this, we are in the middle of a spring thaw. Minnesota weather~always changing.
Just as the weather changes, so will the SNOM board. Mary Jo Martin and Mary Heiman are actively recruiting members for the board. All positions on the board are open for nominations. Serving on the SNOM board is a wonderful opportunity to network, to help advance the SNOM vision and mission, and to learn board function. Serving on the board is not all work, as we also enjoy working towards to goal of providing services to our members in order to elevate the school nurse profession thereby improving student health for student success.
At our February SNOM meeting, we also set the budget for the next year. SNOM is in a good financial position, so we are able to continue offering an outstanding fall conference and school nurse orientation along with SNOM’s committee work. We are also involved in reviewing and revising out strategic plan so that we may continue to advance excellence in school nurse practice.
